770 PINE STREET
Jacob Lind, Jr. built 770 Pine for his daughter Mildred and her husband Harry Hempstead when they were married in 1925. Harry Hempstead was a truck driver. Some records indicated that Jacob Lind Jr. also built the identical bungalow next door at 764 Pine Street for his son.
It appears by city directories that the Lind family was quite close. Mildred and her brother, Walter, were next-door-neighbors on Pine Street, residing at 770 and 764 respectively. The rest of the family, per the 1949 city directory, lived right around the corner on McClure Avenue with Mildred's mother Anna Lind residing at 520 McClure, her brother Elmer at 530, brother William at 534 and brother Carl at 509.
Mildred Hempstead (nee Lind) and Harry lived at 770 Pine together until his death in 1963. Mildred continued to call 770 home by herself until 1981, when she brokered a deal with a new owner.
770 Pine Street is an example of a Bungalow. The house embodies several distinctive characteristics of the Bungalow typology including the hipped roof; large overhanging eaves; 1 and 1/2 stories tall to name a few. The enclosed front porch is contained within the front facade of the house.
